    Rangers' Jesper Fast: Collects two assists against Pens

    Fast recorded two assists in Sunday's overtime loss to the Penguins. It wasn't the result New York wanted, but the Rangers' third line had a productive night, combining for two goals and six points. Fast only has 28 points (10 goals) in 73 games, but he's skating with Eric Staal and Kevin Hayes, so there is a chance for more production. While he doesn't play on the power play, the 24-year-old is a decent depth scorer who is valuable in some deeper leagues.

    Rangers' Jesper Fast: Will play Thursday

    In a bit of a surprise, Fast (illness) will actually play Thursday against the Penguins. An earlier report indicated that Fast would not travel with the team to Pittsburgh, but it appears a night's rest did the trick. The Record's Andrew Gross reports that he's slated to rejoin the second line with Derrick Brassard and J.T. Miller, but he's tallied just one point in his last eight games, so any production would be useful at this point.

    Rangers' Jesper Fast: Won't travel to Pittsburgh

    Fast (illness) will not go with the Rangers when they travel to Pittsburgh for Thursday's game against the Penguins. The news rules him out for the contest, with the team also indicating that they will recall another forward on emergency conditions before the contest. Thursday marks Fast's second straight game missed because of the flu, but it probably won't cost him too much more time. Expect another update before the team's next game Friday against the Capitals, with 24-year-old winger likely slotting back into a top-six role when healthy.

    Rangers' Jesper Fast: Misses practice with illness

    Fast missed practice Monday with flu symptoms. Perhaps he's sick or perhaps he just partied too hard while watching Sunday night's Oscars -- who can say? Either way, the 24-year-old winger seems like he could sit out Monday night's game against Columbus, in which case the Rangers would have to make a call-up in order to avoid dressing seven defensemen.

    Rangers' Jesper Fast: Will play Saturday

    As expected, Fast (nose) will be in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Stars. Fast suffered a broken nose in Friday's practice, but that injury won't hold the speedy winger out of Saturday's matchup with Dallas, as he'll simply wear a full facial shield to protect his banged-up face during game action. The former sixth-round pick is expected to skate alongside J.T. Miller and Derick Brassard on the Rangers' second line in Saturday's tilt.

    Rangers' Jesper Fast: Breaks nose, still expected to play

    Fast suffered a broken nose at practice Friday, but is expected to dress Saturday against the Stars. It wouldn't be surprising if Fast decides to go with a full shield Saturday to protect his nose, but he should be available for the contest. The winger has seen a lot of extra ice time since breaking into the top six, and has tallied 21 points (eight goals) in 59 contests this season. He's also seen time on the second power play unit recently, but that hasn't resulted in a point on the man advantage yet. However, it does make him a decent value play for those in daily contests. Expect another update on Fast in advance of Saturday's contest, confirming his status.

    Rangers' Jesper Fast: Pairs with Brassard, collects pair of assists

    Fast collected a pair of assists in Monday's 6-3 victory over the Sabres. One of the few skaters who earned head coach Alain Vigneault's praise after Sunday's loss to Ottawa, the 24-year-old rookie didn't disappoint alongside Derick Brassard (five points) and J.T. Miller (one goal). Fast now has three points in as many games heading into the All-Star break. In 47 games, Fast is plus-5 with seven goals and 17 points.

    Rangers' Jesper Fast: Continues consistency, despite the loss

    Fast found the netting for the sixth time of the season in a 5-3 loss to the Predators on Monday. Not too shabby for the recently turned 24-year-old Swedish sophomore. Most importantly, Fast is beginning to string together the points, having logged four (two goals, two assists) of his season-total 12 points in last six tilts.

    Rangers' Jesper Fast: Plays with second line, collects assist

    Fast logged an assist in Sunday's loss to the Capitals. More eye-opening was the season-high 17-plus minutes of ice time the young forward logged alongside of second-liners Derek Stepan and Chris Kreider. With this latest four-game spurt (goal and two assists), Fast brings his season total to 11 points in 33 games. As long as he continues to register points, there's no reason to believe head coach Alain Vigneault won't continue to reward him with top-six minutes. Keep a close eye on the 24-year-old Swedish sophomore.

    Rangers' Jesper Fast: Hits empty net

    Fast scored an empty-net goal to seal the win Tuesday against Edmonton. Fast notched goal number five, making that nine points for the season. Playing on the Rangers' second line, the young winger appears to be adjusting well to the NHL game and needs one more goal to tie his career high from last year.
